I JUST GOT MY NEW T-MAXX, AND IT WILL NOT START. I'D LIKE TO BREAK IT IN AND START DRIVING IT, BUT THE PIECE ISN'T WORKING! THE GLOW PLUG IGNITES, THE CARB'S HIGH-SPEED JET IS AT 2 1/2 OUT. THE EZ-START IS CRANKING, BUT THE FUEL JUST POURS THROUGH AND INTO THE PIPE!! IT'S KILLING ME! HELP

this is normall. Just make sure that the glow plug works, its cranking, your getting fuel. After it fires for the first time it will start easily after break in.
My Nitro Sport gets squirly at wot

I'VE BEEN TRYING TO START IT FOR 8 HOURS. IT HAS STARTED TWICE, RAN FOR MAYBE 1/2 SECOND EACH TIME; BUT ONLY AFTER THE HIGH-SPEED JET WAS CLOSED-0 TURNS OUT! WHAT IS IT'S PROBLEM?

Your flooded, thats why it is comming out the exhaust, Take out glow plug, and turn the truck over and crank the ez starter and gas should come out.

Do not use the primer button at all, this will only add to the flooding.
1. Pull the black wire going to the e-z start motor.
2. place the truck aginst somthing heavy or step on the back tire.
3. You can turn the throttle trim up to open the card up, to free up the hand you will need to swap the wire.
4. Pruss the e-z start button for 5 seconds to pre heat the glow plug.
5. While continuing to press the e-z star reconnect the black e-z start lead wire to the e-z start motor to turn the engine over.
6. Should fire right away.

When Breaking in a new motor it is best if you use a Glo-starter,,the one on the truck is great after engine is broken in..Right now your engine is tight and when cranking,, it is taking more juice from the battery,,not allowing the glow plug to burn as hot..Buy a seperate Glo-starter and your problem maybe solved also buy alot of glow plugs,,you can never have enough..Hang in there you'll get it...

Turn the truck over with the glowplug out and run the ezstart until nothing comes out (10-20 secs) then put the plug back, preheat it, and crank the motor over w/o touching the primer. My T wouldnt start for 3 hours and i was new to nitro and very frustrated, but now its easy. There is a huge learning curve with nitro, but the + of a learning curve is you learn quick... keep it up and you'll love nitro http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/smile.gif
LOW SPEED AND IDEL IS NOT RIGHT
get back it's a killer

I just recently had the same problem. If you disconnect the red wire from the motor (i think ez-start motor) so that when you press the button it doesn't try to start the engine. Instead, a current is running through the motor to warm it up. After i tried this multiple times, i eventually got it going. You will probably have to play with glowplugs allot during break in process also. Good Luck

Hold your throttle wide open while your crank it over. Just be sure and put something in front of your truck. This helped mine alot when I was first breaking it in.

If your truck is flooding just crank it for a couple seconds and then pinch the fuel line shut untill it fires up. then let go of line. this is what i had to do to get my pede runnin. dont keep crankin the ezstart while the engine is flooded or you could fry your ezstart motor. hope this helps

The best thing that i found is to disconnect the easyplug starter and use a clampon glostart, or buy a spendy 7.2 battery that will hold a really good charge, once it is broke in the easystart charge works great.

vinnemaxx: you never disconect the black wire first, thats your ground. The black wire goes off last and goes on first.
Nope, can't find anyone that cares
